Introduction to the AR-15

October 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$35

The AR-15, frequently termed the “modern sporting rifle” or MSR, truly is America’s rifle of choice for a civilian sporting rifle. Whether you are thinking about your first purchase, or already own one (or more…) and want to become familiar with the nuts and bolts of the AR—we have you covered with our Intro to AR-15 class!

Our instructors will discuss what you need to know for smart purchase, responsible ownership, and safe operation of AR-pattern firearms.

What you’ll learn:

1) a review of firearm safety rules and storage;

2) types of AR rifles, carbines, and pistol platforms; gas vs piston systems;

3) parts and operation;

4) how to field-strip with proper cleaning methods and necessary tools;

5) sensible modifications and worthwhile accessories;

7) optics options

You will shoot your AR at the end of class!

***PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION PROVIDED TO EACH STUDENT, THIS CLASS IS LIMITED TO TEN (10) PARTICIPANTS.

Materials required:

1) Bring your gun (UNLOADED) and one magazine—also UNLOADED!

If you do not have your own AR, we will offer a selection of ARs to shoot at the end of class.

Each participant will be provided with 20 rounds of .223/5.56 ammunition for shooting on the range at the end of the class under instructor supervision.

2) Ammunition: do not bring loaded firearms or magazines to the class.  You will only load a firearm at the direction of the instructor. We provide 20 rounds of 5.56/.223 ammo to shoot at the end of class.

3) We recommend that you bring your own eye and ear protection–electronic shooting muffs are preferred.  However, if you do not yet own your own muffs, we can provide a non-electronic model.

Reserve your spot online today, as each session is limited to only ten (10) participants!

Class Duration: Two hours.

Plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign range waivers.

Only $35.  Limited spaces for this class!
